Crysis 2 now Killzone 3, oh boy.

What's next? :/

Kon2441d ago

Probably the Witcher, LA Noire or any big title.

AntoineDcoolette2441d ago

Eh does it really matter that KZ3 is on torrent sites? How many people have a Blu Ray burner how many of them have a hacked PS3 and how many of them are going to DL 40 gigs of data.

blitz06232441d ago

Whatever. So these people get to play it earlier. Doesn't change the fact we still get it later and play it legally

morganfell2441d ago

What's next? It really isn't an issue since 360 and PC titles have been leaked like this for years. HALO Reach was out weeks before launch.

Rival_312441d ago

Can I still say I'm getting this day one?
Or will I forever lose day one status to pirates...
:(

evrfighter2441d ago

will let you know how it plays.

Biggest2441d ago

Let us know how the online works as well.

The_Ultimate_Guy2441d ago

@ AntoineDcoolette

More than likely those that pirate Killzone 3 or any PS3 game is not utilizing a blu-ray burner but rather just transferring it via USB stick and then just saving it onto the PS3 harddrive.

NatureOfLogic2441d ago (Edited 2441d ago )

FTP server, No USB or Blu Ray burner needed.

AndrewRyan2441d ago

@AntoineDcoolette

It's not 40gigs, it's not even half of that. And you don't need a blu ray burner, you just need to download the .iso from your PS3.

GrandTheftZamboni2441d ago

There have been ripped PS3 .iso files available for years now, long before PS3 was hacked, so one more game is not a news. I don't know what was a purpose of sharing pirated games before the system was hacked, though.

NewMonday2441d ago

40 Gigs

good luck with that

hassi942441d ago

40 gigs is about 7-8 hours for me, so it's not that bad.

Not saying that I'm gonna pirate it though, I don't even have a PS3 or anything.

captain-obvious2441d ago

that PIC
...... is FUCKIN WIIIIIIIIIN

lolololololol

thor2441d ago

@Hassi

It's 7-8 hours PRESUMING there are enough seeds to upload to you at that speed. Even small torrents can take ages sometimes.

badz1492441d ago

how do you know you can run it? as far as I know 3.56 is not hacked yet and there's no 3.56 CFW! what if the game requires 3.56, which is highly possible due to it being a Sony's own game?

GT5 was not playable on JBroken PS3 until the recent key leak but now there's nobody on CFW3.56, thus KZ3 which may require 3.56 will not be playable, I sincerely HOPE! screw all of you PIRATES!

sourav932440d ago

@AndrewRyan What are you talking about?? The game is around 43 GB in size. GG said it themselves plus the story said that the leaked torrent is around 42 GB in size. Get your facts right before commenting.

SWORDF1SH2440d ago

Biggest just Killzownd you trolling ass!!!!!!11!1!

n4f2440d ago

well if someone upload 41gig of data i think its faster to download 41 gig of data than upload it

hiredhelp2440d ago (Edited 2440d ago )

Well this can do 1 of 2 things. but before i say. thoes who choose to torrent are gonna torrent game b4 or on realese. changes nothing. thoes of you who leech.are open to anything. in way of viruses. mega slow speeds. USNET"newgroups keep saying.
Right for thoes reaspns of having a early hands on.
to give feed back and how good kz3 really is shaping up compared to the 2nd killzone.

and Secondly i dont think the servers be open just yet for them as what i hear is that they have limited servers for the open beta and ready for the proper retail version.

last note just in the UK a blu ray disc can cost from £5 depending were u go. thats nearly $9 a disc what if it doesnt burn mises a sector. too expensive still at the moment.

HappyGaming2440d ago

The more hype a game has the more likely it is people will want to leak it.

PS - I don't mean hype in a bad way.

Reminds me of when Gears of War 2 got leaked. Sucks for the gaming industry.

ME19892441d ago

Reminds me when any game got leaked.

Larry L2441d ago

But....but....but....GeoHotz SAID he only did it for homebrew and to bring back Linux. He SWEARS it's not for piracy. So this OBVIOUSLY can't be true. Because that would mean GeoHotz and all the other hacker scum theives are lying. Pirates and theives would NEVER lie....would they? No....of COURSE not........

DORMIN2441d ago

Yeah. LOL

Where the f*ck are the mods on this site?
This kind of stuff should not be broadcast on the front page or submitted in any article for that matter. Whomever is running this site will be burning the very bridge they would want to keep standing. Publishers wouldn't want to pay for ad space if you are showcasing its available for pirates right next to it.

Games are leaked ALL THE FREAKIN TIME, the big difference now is "legitimate sites" like N4G are bringing attention to the piracy.

DelbertGrady2441d ago

@DORMIN - Tons of 360 games have had stories about being leaked. Why should this be an exception?

JD_Shadow2441d ago

You want me to start going down to list of how many things are wrong with that feeble attempt at sarcasm? If you do, we'll be here all day!

This is not news, or in any way a direct result of CFW! This sort of thing has been going on for years, and it's a waste of time to try to stop it because so many will replace what you take down.

ProGrasTiNation2441d ago (Edited 2441d ago )

This wont hurt a game like KZ3,,just like ops,halo,hell every fucking game...its the small game devs that get hit hardest with piracy & thats only if they release shit!

The Lazy One2440d ago

@"But....but....but....Ge oHotz SAID he only did it for homebrew and to bring back Linux. He SWEARS it's not for piracy. So this OBVIOUSLY can't be true.

leaking an iso has nothing to do with opening the system. It could have been leaked if the PS3 was never cracked at all.

catguykyou2440d ago

Actually geoh. Was working on implimenting security measures back into his crack so people could still do homebrew but not play pirated games. That is, until Sony took him to court. Now he can't do anything.

t0n3y2440d ago

catguykyou - provide a link.

DORMIN2440d ago

@DelbertGrady:

I'm talking about ALL games in general (and I said that). I don't see why you need to bring up the 360 in general since many big game leaks from all 4 systems have been "advertised" on this site.

With high profile games like Crysis and Killzone just over one weekend, these kind of articles just need to stop being broadcasted.

Mottsy2440d ago

@ Larry L if you think this wasnt done before geohot then you need to open your eyes. Nothing new here fellas move along.

kevnb2441d ago

Crysis 2 is just an early unfinished beta. This is the entire finished game.

Mr_Shuttlezworth2441d ago (Edited 2441d ago )

My question is, why is this news? Games always leak early, this is nothing new to the industry. At the point that ANY disc goes gold, be it movies, music, or games, once it is physically pressed to disc, you can be certain that it will find its way onto the internet. What hurts the situation is that these FAKE gaming sites basically exploit the fact that the game has leaked just to get hits.

If it weren't for these articles most people would never even know. This same thing happened when they hacked the PS3. By "reporting" on it, they only spread the word faster and helped "market" the hack to people who would have never even know about it otherwise.

But i guess they feel the .0002 cents they get every time somebody visits their site is worth the damage it's doing to the industry that they leech from. Pathetic.

visualb2441d ago

a 41 gig download for a game that will probably end up only being single player*

sorry, i rather buy the game n get the whole thing

NewMonday2441d ago

Imagine someone getting a corrupted download after finishing the whole thing.

FreydaWright2441d ago

People forget developers are smart. I have a feeling it won't be playable unless your PS3 has firmware 3.56 or higher.

Mr_Shuttlezworth2440d ago (Edited 2440d ago )

They figured out to play 3.55 games on 3.41 pretty easily... I doubt it would be a problem for very long if that is the case. Not that i support any of that kind of stuff, because i dont.

branchedout2440d ago

Well, they'd get through the single player, but multiplayer's out the window. 3.56 is a nogo for online.

Sad fact is, since the pirates can't get online, Sony can't figure out who got the leaked copies. Unless Sony does some voodoo and gets info from the consoles without being connected to PSN.

ChrisW2441d ago

Torrents suck! The old-school "alt.binaries" are the way to go!!!

ColinZeal2440d ago

alt.binaries makes me feel OLD. Which I am btw. *facepalm*

GodofSackboy2441d ago

I pity any fool who tries to download this.

41 GIGABYTES.

hamburger1232441d ago

hahahaha

gettin this day -12

just kidding .

meluvulongtime2440d ago

Crooks are going steal it. Real fans are going to purchase it. Nothing new with the world. People that get it illegally generally have little to no intention of buying the game in the first place. All I know is I'll be purchasing my copy

NeutralGamer2440d ago (Edited 2440d ago )

Hmm how the fuck does this happen?

Killzone and Crysis leaking?

I understand when a game gets leaked, when its already on the store warehouses waiting to be sold...

But these leaked buils are unfinished alpha versions (the crysis was an unfinished non polished build)...

That means it is an employee at EA/Crytek!!!!

The Lazy One2440d ago

AFter it goes gold it could be any number of people that work at the manufacturer too.

andron6662440d ago

Who cares?

I can't wait to play KZ3. I have the special edition pre-ordered for weeks now. No Killzone fan would download KZ3, only losers...

tatotiburon2440d ago

and the ripped version is now available, with a total size of 20gb, compressed video, no 3d, extra lenguages (18)...

been a pirate on ps3 is even easier now and is now the easiest console to hack...with the 360 you need to mod the dvd drive, you have to open the console, remove the drive, plug it in to a pc but you need to know wft are you doing, the new dvd drives need an extra work, with wires and a weld gun, not everybody will do that...with the ps3 yo only need a pen drive and the work is done, you don't even need a br burner, now you have the full games and ripped games, all psn games, extra content, etc...with the 360 you can't do that, you need a jtag console that are the consoles without anyupdate from 2009 to date and try to find one hahaha

even the wii is harder to hack than the ps3 lol

so, some gamers already download this game and saw what Killzone 3 looks like inside:
41.4 GB
9.00 GB - game
32.4 GB - cinema

i lold

PirateThom2441d ago

I doubt that's true, Killzone doesn't exactly have a lot of cutscenes and most are in-engine...

DualConsoleOwner2441d ago (Edited 2441d ago )

the cut scenes are ran by in game engine. meaning it doesnt take much space.

Shaman2441d ago

On contrary...Killzone 3 has 74 minutes of cutscenes and most of them are pre rendered,confirmed by the dev at NeoGaf.

blitz06232441d ago

9gb just for game? That's still more than what your precious DVD9s can hold. Fail.

the_kutaragi_baka2441d ago

damn prepare for trolls and you spoilers of ending Killzone 3.

duplissi2441d ago

pre rendered using in game engine and assets (looks identical to gameplay) so as to mask loadtimes....

also 74 minutes of cutscenes is DEFINITELY NOT 32.4Gb but more like 15-20Gb.....

SonyNGP2441d ago

It had pre-rendered cutscenes. You can tell by pausing on the cutscenes.

no_more_trolling2440d ago

quite on the money about 20gb is gone after they stripped out the 3d movie files lol

Expected it to bigger.

Still, size is a reflection on the quality of a title.

kharma452441d ago

Crap, that was supposed to say "size isn't a reflection on the quality of a title."

Apologies as I can't edit that post now.

Shaman2441d ago

LOL...and you still get disagrees for putting the screenshot that PROVES that KZ3 game data is 9gb.What a fanboy dream this place is...

duplissi2441d ago

it proves something alright.... it proves that i can make a iso and name it killzone 3 and fill it up however i may please and put it up on the internet to the dismay of fanboys everywhere...

and besides even if it is true... it doesnt mean anything.
